Here Is the BeehiveHere Is the Beehive by Sarah Crossan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It took me a while to get into this book because the style of writing is so unusual. Read an extract and you will see what I mean. The narrative is written as the thought stream of a married probate solicitor, Ana, as she talks to her lover. It opens with a telephone conversation with her lover’s wife in which it is revealed that Connor, her lover, has been tragically killed in a road traffic accident.

There are many twists and turns as Ana gets to know Rebecca, Connor’s wife and each of them peel away the layers of deceit that have surrounded the affair. It is well written and is very thought-provoking.

The ending is fairly good but could have been much more dramatic and impactful.

I would love to see a side story: the thoughts of the ghost of Connor. That would make interesting reading.

This is a short read and is worth the effort.
